Review:

Bem and de Jong present complex ideas in an accessible manner. Theoretical Issues in Psychology gives undergraduate psychology students all the resources they need to begin reflecting on the most pressing conceptual issues in their discipline. (Stuart Wilson)

From the debates in psychosomatic health to consciousness working mechanisms, and from neuro connectionism to social interactionism, the authors of this text have adopted a variety of perspectives to evaluate well-known psychological theories and contemporary studies. The clear structure of this book, along with the use of multiple real-life examples, will make it easy and enjoyable to use.

(Kirk Chang)
